Grade - moderate

Beinn Dorain is a familiar sight to those travelling northwards along the A82 or along the West Highland railway line. This Argyll & Bute walk is not the hardest of climbs and is most often combined with neighbouring Munro Beinn an Dothaidh. Despite the relatively large ascent this is not too difficult a walk and is within the capabilities of most walkers.
